Jesterly Challenge Month – November 11th

AR Neal asked me to write a haiku about gallynappers.  I couldn’t stop at just one, so hopefully she doesn’t mind that I wrote four instead.  Give them a read and let me know how I did in the comments.


Gallynappers snore,
Under changing autumn leaves,
Miss the chainsaw’s roar.


Gallynappers snooze,
In winter’s calm ocean beds,
Miss pollution’s sneak.


Gallynappers rest,
On the warming sands of spring,
Miss the dump truck’s squeal.


Gallynappers sleep,
Tall grasses ward summer’s heat,
Miss the wildfire’s dance.
